The loved-up couple were photographed hugging and kissing on the beach in front of other holidaymakers.
A friend said: “Ella and Joe are very much in love and have been together for a while now. They are both from Manchester and have mutual friends who introduced them.
“Those who know them think they are the perfect pairing. Joe is Ella’s biggest cheerleader and he could not have been more proud to watch her lifting the trophy at the Euros.
“They keep their love life out of the spotlight usually but Joe couldn’t resist joining Ella in Ibiza to celebrate with her.”
Ella was pictured letting her hair down on a luxury yacht off the party isle.
He has previously played for a number of teams, including a five-year stint at Rochdale and spells at Northampton Town and Bolton Wanderers.
Joe, who has two kids from a previous relationship, also had a trial at Scunthorpe this summer and played in a pre-season loss against Middlesbrough.
She equalised against Spain in the quarter-finals — and her incredible chip in the final after coming off the bench sent the Wembley crowd berserk.
Ella said: “I thought that would be the best shot to do.
“I started celebrating even before it had gone in the net, so I was confident it was going in and then the whole stadium erupted.
“Honestly – best feeling of my life.”
